Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello what questions were you asked that may have revealed that?
Ok thanks leave it with me please I will reply later this eve thanks
Many thanks for your patience. Your rights will very much depend on your length of service with the current employer. If you have been employed there for less than 2 years then you will not be protected against unfair dismissal. This means that the employer could dismiss you for more or less any reason and they simply need to issue you with the contractual notice period you are due. So even if you were never asked about your work history and have done nothing wrong at all, they could still potentially dismiss you. Of course there is no guarantee they would look as far as a dismissal but that would be your position if they did decide to dismiss.
If your service was longer than 2 years then you will have protection against unfair dismissal. Therefore the employer has to show that the was a fair reason to dismiss you and also follow a fair procedure. If you were previously dismissed for gross misconduct that does not mean that the current employer can dismiss you, unless you had misled them or lied about this history when joining them. In the circumstances that was not the case and unless you were specifically asked about this history you would not have had to disclose it so you have not really done anything wrong.
This is your basic legal position. I have more detailed advice for you in terms of the rights you have should a dismissal take place, which I wish to discuss so please take a second to leave a positive rating for the service so far (by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars) and I can continue with that and answer any further questions you may have. Don’t worry, there is no extra cost and leaving a rating will not close the question and we can continue this discussion. Thank you
